Kantaji Temple

The most ornate among the late medieval Hindu temples of Bangladesh Kantaji temple is situated near Dinajpur town. It was built by Maharaja Pran Nath in 1752. Every inch of the temple surface is beautifully embellished with exquisite terracotta plaques, representing flora and fauna, geometric motifs, mythological scenes and an astonishing array of contemporary social scenes and favourite pasttime. The Maharaja’s palace with relics of the past and the local museum are well worth a visit.

There is a Parjatan motel in Dinajpur, offers good accommodation and food and warm hospitality.
